These two wooden chests were decorated by my great-grandfather. They were part of a whole bunch of items he made for his daughters. To the set also belonged a footstool, a bench, a large jewellery box and possibly more items. He also painted some pictures but I am not in possession of these items, but I do remember them being stored in our attic and hanging on the wall of my great-aunts living room.
I never met my great-grandfather but I was told that he was a decorator and restorer.
The chest with the key is slightly larger than the one without the key. The hardware of both chests is original. Although they show some wear, I have decided to keep them in their original condition. To prevent further damage to the top, I have placed specially made safety class on both of the trunks.
Thanks for looking:)
